Good morning! This Topher from Washington Church of Christ,
where I am happy to be recording now.
You're struggling to stay awake. It's been 14 miles since the last lonely exit. That quiet stretch of I-69 has taken its toll
and you're fighting to keep your wheels between the blurring white and yellow
lines. Suddenly your heart leaps with joy at the sign that says "Next
Exit, 1 Mile, Washington Indiana.”
There's something special about arriving
home from a long road trip. For Ashley
and me, we did enjoy this last road trip seeing family, visiting friends, and
sharing our faith, but we were really grateful to finally lay down in our own
room at home.
In John 14, Jesus excited the disciples
when telling them they were almost home by saying, "In My Father's house
are many rooms ... and I am going to prepare a room for you." (excerpt from 14:2).
Sometimes the journey through this life is
hard, fraught with trials and struggles.
But if you read and believe the Good News written of Jesus Christ in
the Bible, you begin to see a joyous
sign that tells you, "You're almost home."
Believe in God, follow His Word, and look
forward to finally arriving at Home!
